Useful Cooking Tips:
If you think there is too much sauce in your curry, simmer it longer until you reach the desired amount of sauce. Also, you can add other vegetables that you like, such as broccoli and cauliflower. If you ever decide to add tofu, we suggest you bake it first. Adding raw tofu will only soak up the liquid. By baking it first, you are improving its texture. Your curry will become more nutritious with the addition of healthier ingredients.
